Awhile back in August of 2011 we announced a short story contest. Participants would go on to write a short story based in the same universe as our game. In order to let people truly express their writing prowess we capped the words at the standard 7,500 words. We got a lot of entries that reached that cap and they could have kept going too! Some of them were funny, some of them sad, and even some grotesque zombie smut which I won't be getting into. It was a blast to read these stories. We would have had a proper update for this sooner, but it took months to read the entries and get everyone to vote on a winner. By that time we were in a rush to get the mod ready for a public release and the other half of the contest got pushed to the way side. The winner Darrin "Bluehawk" Boland's story will still be designed into an official map. We also planned to have the best entries featured in an eBook. So here it is!
